NEWTOWN >> As the temperature hung in the mid-90s at Walt Snyder Stadium, the Class of 2017 kept its cool using mini-fans and lining up for frequent cups of water at coolers strategically positioned on the field.
As the Class sat together for its final time before departing in all directions, their classmates offered a few parting words, some sage advice on achieving success and even a cautionary note about motion sickness.
Delivering remarks to the class were Class President Mason Joseph Luff who spoke about "Unconventional Importance," Ivy Marie Attenborough who encouraged the graduates to "Trust the Process," Brandon Cerami who spoke about "That Something" and Dorothy Zhao who offered "Caution: Motion Sickness."

Within the class are students who who have been recognized locally, statewide and nationally for achievements in academic, athletics, the visual and performing arts and community service.
